DAIICHI 4250 SALMON EGG HOOK - BRONZE
This is another fishing hook that was developed for fishing with bait but is now also being used for artificial bait. Known as an egg hook, this style is generally used by trout fishers using natural salmon eggs as bait.
Today's fly tyers create artificial egg patterns to simulate salmon eggs and many prefer this hook style because the up-eye does not close off the hook gape and the angle of pull enhance hook-ups.
The hooks are made of the finest high-carbon steel, which is hardened and tempered to an exacting formula that makes for a long point life and a very strong hook. Daiichi hooks use a 12-degree constant taper ground needle point. This eliminates irregularities in shape, assuring no weak spots, and gives amazing speed of penetration.
